German pharmaceutical company opens new cold chain facility

Werne, Germany: NextPharma has opened a cold chain warehouse in Werne, between Münster and Dortmund in Germany.

The 15,800m2 warehouse can hold up to 26,000 euro-pallets in temperatures from +15°C to +25°C and 250 euro-pallets in cold storage (+2°C to +8°C) and storage for around 250 euro-pallets of controlled drugs at +15°C to +25°C.

The Werne warehouse has wholesaler authorisation and the NextPharma says it will achieve a manufacturing licence for manual re-packaging, bundling and labelling of secondary packaging early next year.

Picking areas support pick-by-light and scan technology and all processes are controlled via radio frequency and barcode scanning, with batch tracing supported and controlled by a Warehouse Management System.

Franck Latrille, chief executive of NextPharma Technologies, says: “The initiative to build the new warehouse came about as a result of more and more products in the pharmaceutical and biotech industries requiring specialist handling and storage and we are excited at the prospect of being able to meet our customers’ requirements to an even higher standard.”

NextPharma, a provider of product development, contract manufacturing and cold chain and logistics outsourcing services to the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries, also has warehousing and storage in Bielefeld and Munich in Germany; Stockerau, Austria; Turbenthal, Switzerland; and San Diego, CA, US.
